Criminal Finds

The year is 2011. It is a dark time for cachers across the area. A serial killer has been running rampant in the Greater Charlotte area. He has been targeting creative geocache hiders. Innocent cachers attempting to enjoy great area geocaches have been injured, maimed or killed by pipe bombs hidden in place of cache containers. The police are busy trying to understand the motives and methods of this killer. The caching community is looking to you, a member of the FTF Strike Force, to help identify, locate and neutralize this geocrimes suspect before he strikes again.

Reports are coming in from all over the Greater Charlotte area of suspicious people loitering in parking lots near lamp posts, guard rails and electrical boxes. First, we need to test your abilities with the following agency test before we can send you into the field...



Once you have passed the test above, filter through all the reports coming in from 9-1-1. Determine accurate details and information that can be used by police to locate evidence to help capture this killer from the information below...



Good luck, Rookie!
